"The US city Cincinnati celebrates Oktoberfest every year, but this weekend the Bavarian-inspired festival, modelled after the original in Germany, will kick off with a new event.
Organisers have announced the inaugural "Running of the Wieners," a 50-foot race open to the first 50 dachshunds willing to be outfitted in hot-dog bun costumes for a chance to be declared the canine champion.
Dachshunds, commonly known as "wiener dogs" because of their shape, were considered a natural choice for the 32nd annual celebration of Cincinnati's German heritage."
This is Mocas brother Snags and Mocas bum.
We entered them into Jack Russel races at a Garden and Pet Expo. Gosh it was a laugh! We had to put them in starting cages and Moca got stuck trying to turn around. Then when the doors lifted they just stood there wondering what was happening. Needless to say they created quite a laugh and once they reached the end they received matching pink ribbons for trying .
